Meet Joe and Joey.
They're a gay couple living in Minnesota on a mission: to adopt a baby.
They've been together for five years and want to start their family. But their adoption journey had a rocky start. They were matched with a birth mother in October 2014, but just two days before Thanksgiving, they were told the birthmother had changed her mind.
Instead of getting discouraged, Joe and Joey decided to show just how much they were willing to love their child. That perseverance manifested itself in the form of a Meghan Trainor "Dear Future Husband" parody called "Dear Future Baby."
"We knew we wanted to create a video to a Birthmother but also wanted to standout and show our personalities," they told A+ in an email.
And so they did.
They changed a few lyrics around to create this lyrical love letter to their future child.
Lyrics like "Dear future baby, here's a few things you'll need to know, 'cause you'll be our one and only all our life." It's impossible not to melt while listening.
The couple also has an adoption page set up with Life Long Adoptions with detailed information about them for potential birth mothers.
"We truly feel that we make a great team and together we are ready to share our love and hearts with a child of our own," they wrote. "We promise to treasure their lifetime of firsts… first steps, first words, first day of school, first pimple, first love, first heartbreak, first prom, first day at college… We promise to raise your child with appreciation and tenderness. We promise them unconditional love!"
They told A+ that in addition to their dedication to the adoption process (they've had 16 surrogate offers!) they hope their future child will see the video and know how committed their dads were to finding him or her.

There's a long way to go for equality in regards to gay couples adopting, but Joe and Joey prove that no matter what your sexual orientation is, stable people who truly want to adopt have more than enough love — and sweet lyrics — to go around.
"We would love to have this be a family tradition and record a video every year," they said.
